Once upon a time, in the early 1930s, a young girl created the most beautiful collaged scrapbook of her favorite Hollywood screen goddesses and leading men, meticulously pasted onto fragile sheets of lined-school paper. Featured on these pages, are the most glamorous actresses of all time, in hundreds-upon-hundreds of rare candid and on-screen photos (including one of Louise Brooks i've never before seen).
I discovered this beautiful scrapbook (or early fanzine, as I like to think of it), wrapped in tissue paper and plastic at an antique barn in Upstate, NY, and after keeping a few pages for myself, I've decided to part with the bulk of the collection though my Etsy boutique (now SOLD).
Each page was layed out so beautifully, begging for an Art Deco frame to display it, and adding to the romantic ephemeral vibe of the stack is the golden foxing to the edges of each sheet.
Featured Stars Include: Clara Bow, Jeanette MacDonald, Gloria Swanson, Joan Crawford, Marlene Dietrich, Louise Brooks, Dolores Costello (grandmother of Drew Barrymore), Fay Wray, Dolores Del Rio, Lupe Velez, Corinne Griffith, Bebe Daniels, Anita Page, Billie Dove, Norma Shearer,Greta Garbo, Mary Pickford, Loretta Young, Carole Lombard, Claudette Colbert, Pola Negri, and hundreds more.
